Royal Canin Urinary is also formulated for the nutritional management of cats with lower urinary tract disease. In cases of recurrent idiopathic cystitis, Urinary Wet is recommended.
- Struvite dissolution - Urinary S/O Feline effectively dissolves struvite stones.
- Urine dilution - Diluting urine decreases the urinary concentration of struvites and calcium oxalates. The larger urinary volume also ensures regular bladder wash out.
- Low RSS - Undersaturated urine is an environment where crystals cannot proliferate and so is unfavourable to the formation of struvite and calcium oxalate crystals.
- Bladder support - Glycosaminoglycans (GAG) are naturally present on the healthy bladder mucosa but decrease in idiopathic cystitis. This causes increased permeability of the bladder to bacteria, toxins and ions, resulting in bladder inflammation and stimulation of pain sensitive receptors. Reduced level of magnesium, a natural component of struvite crystals.
